The track features on Pearson’s forthcoming EP, out this Halloween.
Bristol’s Katy J Pearson has assembled a star-studded cast to record a new rendition of ‘Fire Leap’, which will feature on her forthcoming EP of compositions lifted from the original soundtrack to 1973 film The Wicker Man.
Katy J Pearson & Friends Present Songs From The Wicker Man will be released 31st October in celebration of the cult film’s 50th anniversary. Besides, Drug Store Romeos, Wet Leg and Sarah Meth, the collection features collaborations with H.Hawkline and Broadside Hacks.
“We jumped at the chance to work with Katy J Pearson and Heavenly [Recordings], to breathe new life into The Wicker Man’s iconic soundtrack,” a spokesperson for film says. “This very special E.P. aims to bring a whole new generation of film and music fans to worship at the feet of this brilliantly scary cult film, in celebration of its 50th Anniversary.”
Pearson has history with the film already. Her album Sound of the Morning featured a cover of ‘Willow’s Song‘, which was initially written by Paul Giovanni for The Wicker Man. Watch her rendition here.
